    Interesting. I considered tweeting about my progress, but figured it'd be too tacky if any faculty saw, so I was just curious how they were going about it.

    That sounds like on the fast end. Mine have been from 2 days to a week in advance, but the faculty usually gave me a week of dates to choose from.

    I am thinking if management/strategy departments act extremely slow this year or those who got interviews did not post on gradcafe...

    I wouldn't say it's usual, but it can happen. When I was applying, I got one on the same day. Email from professor in the morning, interview in the afternoon.

    Did you interview with them? I interviewed with them for Marketing and haven't heard back.

    No interview, just straight rejection. Kinda bummed but if it wasn't meant to be, it wasn't meant to be! Still waiting to hear from 9 more schools (no interviews yet).

    @instajar & @BrazilianPhD Thanks for the reply!

    btw...
    Some OB program updates that I have heard of:
    1. truly top-top Management (micro-OB) has given out offers. (the one that gave out rejection letters last week. If you did not receive rejection letter last friday but have yet to receive calls, it probably is gonna be a relatively good news??)
    2. another truly top-top Micro-OB program are in the process of final round of interviews. Since this school said explicitly that all accepted students must receive interviews during their webcast info session, if you did not receive any interview, I guess... well... I just hate that... why cant they just give out straight rejection from the beginning and only keep those advancing to the next round.
    3. an top European school has given out interviews

    Sorry to hear that. What went wrong? FYI, a lot of people think they tanked interviews that actually went fine Faculty are rarely as critical towards you as you are towards yourself.
